I agree on both points!
Thanks Charlie for your kind selfless work!
Thanks *all* you fellow posters: may this holiday season be Holy, wonderful, & safe for all: for those we love & those we should love.

May no one ever wonder, "Are you kind?"

( This quote from a Bob Weir interview in
Uncut magazine from May 2007 gives a new perspective on the "Are you kind?" line:

"Robert Hunter wrote lyrics for Workingman’s Dead. He could use fewer words, and say more, than anyone. 'Are you kind?', was, I assumed, a sci-fi allusion. 'Kind' meaning 'my kind', 'humankind.' In the context of Workingman’s Dead, it meant: 'Are you simpatico … In solidarity with other working men?'"

That is interesting ... I always just figured it meant literally, "Are you kind?"
not a bad question to ponder
